Building on the success of Colt’s 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 charity bike rides from London to Paris to Amsterdam to Frankfurt to Zurich, from Marseille to Barcelona, this year’s charity bike ride is going to make an even bigger impact, with the greatest donation target ever of our employee initiatives!
Over 100 riders, all amateurs from Belgium, Ireland, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands, Romania, Spain, the UK, Japan, Singapur, India and the USA will be taking part. Between the 22nd and 25th of September we will cycle over 500kms in 4 days and go further into Southern Europe: from Barcelona to Valencia
To date we have ridden over 2,500 kms and raised over €400,000 for vulnerable children across Europe. In 2017, we are extending our expected impact to many more children from cities where Colt operates. Each rider will be raising funds for the local charity partner of the city he or she is from! In total, with Colt's matched funding, our target is to raise over €100,000. We need your help!
Seventeen volunteers from Barcelona will hit the road with the objective of collecting €11.050 to support our Charity Partner, Aldeas Infantiles.
Aldeas Infantiles will use the donation to support one of their programs for children in need:
Protection program, the “Aldea Infantil SOS” village is located in Sant Feliu de Codines and gives shelter to 50 children
Autonomy program, helps adolescents begin the process towards autonomy providing them access to a residence where they will receive the support of coaches
Thanks for your support !!
